We Want YOU to Keep The War Going

Posted by M. C. on April 20, 2022

There is a strong case to be made that Washington goaded Putin into launching this current war. Likewise, the Soviets’ invasion at the end of 1979 was arguably provoked by President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and the boys at Langley. At least they like to think so. Operation Cyclone, as it was called, killed some 15,000 Soviet soldiers and at least one million Afghans.

The American people are allowing their blood soaked rulers in Washington to callously prolong the war in Ukraine. The complicit media  has propagandized and lied the American people into insisting Washington double down on all their worst aggressions. And so continues the hawks’ reckless gamble on World War 3 to spite President Vladimir Putin and – once and for all – destroy Russia. 

President Joe Biden’s administration and other hawks do not want the war in Ukraine to end. They are not alone, some NATO member states prefer to see the war drag on indefinitely as well. As Libertarian Institute news editors Kyle Anzalone and Will Porter wrote last week, 

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine grinds on and the two sides continue negotiations, the Washington Post reports that some NATO states prefer Ukrainians continue “fighting and dying” over “a peace that comes too early,” rejecting any outcome that could be sold as a “victory” for Moscow.

Though Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly acknowledged that his country will not join the NATO alliance in recent weeks, some members are loath for Kiev to accept that key Russian demand, according to officials and diplomats cited by the Post.

“Even a Ukrainian vow not to join NATO could be a concern to some neighbors,” the outlet reported. “That leads to an awkward reality: For some in NATO, it’s better for the Ukrainians to keep fighting, and dying, than to achieve a peace that comes too early or at too high a cost to Kyiv and the rest of Europe.” 

The truth is “some in NATO” are not concerned with “a peace” that comes “at too high a cost” to Kiev or Ukraine, rather they fear a “peace” that comes at too low a cost for Moscow and Russia

Shortly after the aforementioned Washington Post article was published, Estonia’s Prime Minister Kaja Kallas warned against “peace at any price.” This view is shared by the European Union and the United States. As Dave DeCamp, news editor at Antiwar.com, reports,

Echoing this sentiment, Josep Borrell, the EU’s foreign policy chief, said how the war ends matters.

“We want it to end as soon as possible, but not in any way,” Borrel said. “Because if we’re going to have a destroyed country that has been dismembered territorially and neutralized, with millions of people in exile, and millions of people dead, then no, we don’t want this war to end like this.” He said this is why Europe must “continue arming Ukraine … More weapons, that is what the Ukrainians expect of us.”
